Moving Tips: Moving out after a divorce

Have a set schedule when moving out after a divorce.

Divorces are difficult for all involved. If you're moving out of a home due to a divorce, it is important to streamline your packing and transporting process as best you can. There are some measures you can take to make the situation easier on you and your family.

If you can, it may be a good idea to agree with your ex-spouse regarding a period for you to move. This will help them be away from the home, giving both you and them space. There is likely much for you to do, so several hours set for you to gather your things may be for the best. You will also want to give your schedule to your moving company, which will provide you with the ReloCube® to take care of this process swiftly.

While moving, you should only take from the home what belongings to you. Unless you agree with your former spouse to take certain jointly purchased items, it may be best to stick to taking only items that you purchased yourself. It is important to discuss these decisions before the move, as you don't want to make a bigger issue later on.

Ask for help when moving
It could be a good idea to have friends and family help you during this time. Not only will they give you support, but you will likely need moving help as well. Additionally, family and friends lending a hand means the move should make the process less stressful and time-consuming.

If you have small children, it may be necessary to have them with a family member during this time. Not only is it difficult to move with younger kids around during normal circumstances, having them there could make it more stressful on both you and them. Ensuring you have the children occupied can help you concentrate and get through the move.
